- Endocrine disruptors in bottled mineral water: total estrogenic burden and migration from plastic bottlesMartin Wagner
Department of Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Siesmayerstr 70 A, 60054, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 16:278-86. 2009..The aim of this study was to assess the integrated estrogenic burden of bottled mineral water as model foodstuff and to characterize the potential sources of the estrogenic contamination...
- Deriving bio-equivalents from in vitro bioassays: assessment of existing uncertainties and strategies to improve accuracy and reportingMartin Wagner
Department of Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Environ Toxicol Chem 32:1906-17. 2013..To improve accuracy and transparency of bio-equivalents, we propose a novel data analysis strategy and a checklist for reporting Minimum Information about Bio-equivalent ESTimates (MIBEST)...
- Endocrine disruptors in bottled mineral water: estrogenic activity in the E-ScreenMartin Wagner
Department Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol 127:128-35. 2011..Furthermore, the findings presented here conform to previous studies and indicate that the contamination of bottled water with endocrine disruptors is a transnational phenomenon...
- Endocrine modulation and toxic effects of two commonly used UV screens on the aquatic invertebrates Potamopyrgus antipodarum and Lumbriculus variegatusClaudia Schmitt
Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Department Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Siesmayerstrasse 70, 60323 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Environ Pollut 152:322-9. 2008..While reproduction decreased, the worms' weight increased after exposure to 3-BC with an EC50 of 26.9 microM (=6.46 mg kg(-1) dw), hence the total biomass remained unaffected...
- Ozonation and activated carbon treatment of sewage effluents: removal of endocrine activity and cytotoxicityDaniel Stalter
Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Biological Sciences Division, Department Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Siesmayerstrasse 70, 60323 Frankfurt, Germany
Water Res 45:1015-24. 2011..However, due to the limited extractability, polar ozonation by-products were neglected for toxicity analysis, and hence non-specific toxicity after O(3) is underestimated...
- Estrogens in the daily diet: in vitro analysis indicates that estrogenic activity is omnipresent in foodstuff and infant formulaMaximilian Behr
Department Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany
Food Chem Toxicol 49:2681-8. 2011..While the dietary exposure to estrogenic activity is lower than previously estimated, our results demonstrate that many food types are a source of unidentified estrogen-like compounds still awaiting toxicological evaluation...
- Identification of putative steroid receptor antagonists in bottled water: combining bioassays and high-resolution mass spectrometryMartin Wagner
Department Aquatic Ecotoxicology, Faculty of Biological Sciences, Goethe University Frankfurt, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
PLoS ONE 8:e72472. 2013..Notably, dioctyl fumarates and maleates have been overlooked by science and regulation to date. This illustrates the need to identify novel toxicologically relevant compounds to establish a more holistic picture of the human exposome. ..
